03 August 2012
It's been a topsy-turvy week for me...no matter how I looked at it, I was looking at it wrong. It started with Tuesday feeling like Wednesday - and it just continued on. Today is Friday but yesterday felt like Friday! To add insult to injury, I'm doing a quick two-hour training today - on a Friday! I never train on Friday!
I think a lot of it is because I've been slammed at work. I may have mentioned that one of my colleagues is out on medical leave and so all the technical training has fallen in my lap. I'm up to the challenge, oh definitely. It's just that I've been receiving lots of requests for training outside the norm. Next week I begin a hectic schedule of training a certain group of colleagues; the entire group will take 16 three-hour training sessions over eight days. In between I also have other classes to train. I already have two other groups scheduled for two different dates in September.
It doesn't help that I cannot believe we're in August already. The Olympics have been a nice distraction although I'm not certain I care for the NBC coverage; why are all the popular events broken up and spread out throughout the evening into the late hours? While I think male swimmer bodies are hot I'm a little done with all of the prelims, semi-finals, and finals. Too much swimming, imo.
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, may your Friday be quick and painless so we can get to the weekend.
PS: Hypocritical comment: Congratulations to Tyler Clary on his Gold medal for the Men's 200M Back. It's nice when there's an unexpected winner!
